    I've been out of the news for a while now (new job, crazy hours). Having visited this forum today, it seems there is some new virus which everyone seems to be questioning. While checking one of the links provided by someone here, the webpage mentions that the virus creates a image in /tmp/i.png.
    To check if I had that, I visited the tmp folder and came across this. I'm assuming the red icon at bottom means denied access as when I double click, that is the message I receive (well along the lines of that).
    I should mention that I am the sole user (admin) of this computer so any clue as to why this may be the case? Thanks.

    Couple things... First, you most likely don't have it.
    Second, follow the directions that the website gives for Terminal.

    In addition, some folders are restricted from everyone but the root user.
